Jovy Gatdula also said she has forgotten that she is a minor and is ready to get married. “Kinalimutan ko na yung pagiging sixteen kasi nandidato na ‘ko sa time na, yung buhay na settled na di ba? Na hindi ko na kailangan yung maraming kaibigan.”
Jovy said her relationship with Freddie Aguilar has her parents blessings but at the same time she was also told to take care because Freddie is a womanizer. “Sabi ng nanay ko, ‘Eh di sige kung kung doon ka masaya eh di susuportahan ka namin.’ Tapos ‘yon sinabi na nila na, ‘pero mag-ingat ka kasi maraming babae ‘yan.'”
She asaid she is deeply hurt of the criticisms thrown their way because of their May-December affair (they have a 44 years age gap), she said, “Basta alam ko, mahal ko si Freddie.”
Meanwhile, Freddie Aguilar’s daughter, singer Maegan Aguilar, defended her father from criticisms about his relationship with the minor Jovy Gatdula. She said:
“Mahigit na sa isang dekadang hiwalay si Tatay sa Nanay namin…6 kaming magkakapatid at sa tingin ko’y wala siyang naging pagkukulang bilang AMA sa amin. Lumaki kaming “independent” and absoutely FREE FROM THE SHACKLES OF SOCIETY. None of us are LIARS or CORRUPT like most people around us. And Tatay dating “JOVI GATDULA” is no problem to any of us at all, desisyon nilang dalawa yun-walang nagpilit sa kanila na maging sila…SO ANONG PROBLEMA NIYO? Kasi INAMIN NI TATAY? anung masama dun? Anung masama kung nagpakatotoo siya? Sige nga!” Photo credits: Maegan Aguilar and Mr. Wendall.
